H Drawing

This is definitely a great example of a grungy image. I wish it was not quite so smudgy, after all it is the only copy of this great letter H drawing. It’s a bit larger than some of the others and looks as if it were hand drawn on parchment. I like it but I have no ideas for how it could be used.

It was included in a book that made no mention of an illustrator but so many of these fancy letter images are from print foundries, it might not even be unique to this book – several of the other letter images were ones that I’ve seen before.

The book dates back to 1854 so I’m pretty confident no matter who drew this H drawing that it is fully in the public domain. The letter H is drawn using only leaves and vines. It’s quite pretty. Such a shame it is so fuzzy. Hopefully, you can do something amazing with it that I haven’t thought of.
